Description

Sitwell Park Golf Club - The club was founded in 1913 at Shrogs Wood Road, Rotherham, South Yorkshire, using a course of eighteen holes. The style and thought put into this attractive gilt brass and enamelled example (19mm) suggest that it appertains to the ladies of the Club and could therefore be either for uniform use or as an award. Within a border of decorative scrolling are crossed clubs superimposed with the enamelled white rose of York, the whole overlaid with a quadriform club title in blue enamel, Sitwell Park G.C. Rotherham. The reverse is unmarked. Both this course and the nearby Renishaw Park GC are on land initially leased from the Sitwell family.

Information is from an article in "The British Golf Collectors Society" written by Dixon Pickup.
